Hey everyone and welcome. This space will feature thoughts, musings, information, humor, referrals, advice, encouragement and humor — not necessarily in that order. The title comes from my official title as Pendleton Chair of the Ithaca College program. I love my job here, especially because when I was given this title it immediately reminded me of that great line from “Annie Hall” where Woody Allen’s neurotic comedian alter ego Alvy Singer, talks with his equally neurotic first wife, Robin, at a pretentious cocktail party he doesn’t want to be at.
Robin: There’s Henry Drucker. He has a chair at Princeton. Oh, and the short man is Hershel Kaminsky. He has a chair in philosophy at Cornell.
Alvy Singer: Yeah? Two more chairs they got a dining room set.
I have waited my entire life to be a character OTHER than the New York Jewish neurotic hypochondriacal short guy in a Woody Allen film.
I don’t know what those chairs blog about but aside from my views I want to be able to refer you to smart, funny and intelligent people, articles and websites. Maybe even a few cool movies, tv shows, events, songs and/or show tunes.
